Welcome to Year 3

Year 3 is a really important year as the children transition for Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2.  We take a wide range of approaches to learning, helping the children to become used to some of the more formal and independent ways to work that are expected.

Children should be bringing home their reading book every day and reading with an adult 4-5 times per week. Reading at home counts as part of homework expectations and will be reflected in Pupil Profiles.  Reading books are set according to the level we think will move them on in their reading skills most effectively and regularly reviewed.  It really makes a difference to a child's learning if an adult reads with them each day and discusses what they have read.  

 Autumn Term 2

This half term has been extremely busy! We have visited Hoops to learn how to play tennis. Everyone really enjoyed it. 

"I really enjoyed tennis, especially on the last week when we had to play a one to one challenge and I was unbeaten" Brody.

In other  PE lessons we worked on basic skills and some of our class were chosen to represent the school at a PE skills competition

In literacy we learned all about play scripts and how to write them. In maths we looked at using two digit numbers and explored using them in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

In music we learned about pitch and how to breathe when singing. This came in very handy when we were learning all the songs for our Christmas show!

In science we looked at rocks and how different rocks are formed.
